Wednesday Triple Play

I've got three cards to share with you today.  The first is for the Lawnscaping Birthday challenge where they're celebrating their 100th challenge!  Whoop whoop!  I went on a patterned paper bender with this card using papers from Echo Park, Jillibean Soup and Studio Calico.  All the stamps and the speech bubble die are from Lawn Fawn.  Totally out of my CAS comfort zone but I'm digging the bright colours and patting myself on the back for the use of patterned paper.  :)  I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge where the design team is showcasing Lawn Fawn products.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Dark yellow, green & turquoise from This & That Charming 6x6, Pink from This & That Graceful 6x6) Echo Park, (Dark brown & light yellow from Homemade 6 Bean Soup 6x6) Jillibean Soup, (Beige from Classic Calico Collection Vol. 2) Studio Calico
Stamps:  (Dog from Critters at the Dog Park, Cupcake from Bake Me a Cake, Sentiment from Grand Greetings) Lawn Fawn
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Speech Bubble Border) Lawn Fawn

My second card uses the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the colours from Just Us Girls.  I masked and inked the centre stripe with Sahara Sand and then paper pieced the balloons with Soft Sky and Night of Navy.  The Papertrey Ink Happy has a layer of Clear Wink of Stella coating it and the balloons are covered with Glossy Accents.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Regal Rose, Soft Sky, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Balloons from So Much To Say) Lawn Fawn, (Birthday from Halftone Hello) Altenew
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Sahara Sand) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Happy) Papertrey Ink
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger

My final card is for Papertrey Ink's February Blog Hop.  I don't think I've ever taken part in one of these hops before so I'm excited to join in!  I took another crack at watercolouring and created a wash on some Tim Holtz watercolor paper which I then covered with PTI's Quatrefoil cover plate.  I layered up two Life Is Beautiful butterfly dies and the sentiment is from Script Sentiments.  Okay, that's it from me today.  See you tomorrow!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Watercolour) Ranger, (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Perfect Plum, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Script Sentiments) Papertrey Ink
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Coverplate:  Quatrefoil, Life Is Beautiful) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections
